    I can agree that LeBron will be better this season but not best we have seen him in a while

          Man i love kawhi. He will go down as one of the greats. Bringing the title to the raptors was mad impressive. However, he is not better than lebron. With kevin durant healthy, not only do the warriors win, but they get swept. Lebron has proven time and tims again why he is on top. Then all of a sudden due to a mid season injury, he misses the playoff for the first time in years. And as soon as that happens everybody in the nba is better than him? Just disrespectful. Kawhi not better than kd let alone lebron. Yall gotta wake up.

                            Lakers are 28-27 with LeBron in the lineup. Still missed the playoffs after he activated playoff mode. They add top 5 player Anthony Davis and "Lebron" is gonna be the MVP? 🤔

                                                        So Lakers vs clippers, both teams have home court advantage?

                                                                If both of the teams are healthy it's going to be a battle. Clippers are scary though with one of the best defensive teams in the league. But Paul George and Kawhi Leonard have had some troubles with injuries too. Kawhi was out for like 2 and half seasons and PG had shoulder issues.

They could have scheduled nets vs Boston or rockets vs blazers on opening night they wasted a lakers vs clippers game in my opinion and the schedule wasn’t even out yet

                                                                                            I think we should be realistic when evaluating LBJ. The guy is in his 17th season. It’s unrealistic to expect or to think he can duplicate the level of dominance he had in Cleveland and Miami. The Lakers have to build around AD and Kuzma.
